A North Carolina husband, father, and hardware store owner’s life becomes radically altered during the pandemic.
Performed by Daniel Damiano and Judy Alvarez. Directed by Leslie Kincaid Burby.
Following the reading, Society Leader Dr. Nori Rost will lead a discussion exploring the ethical issues raised in the play, including the choices that people make, and the power of those things that influence us for good or evil.
